Now we're gona bum-rush these mostly single pics of figures. Many of these are from various posts where I was just showing off new purchases (again), so I'll make a quick schpeal about them as I go and we'll all leave a little more informed, eh? Well okay, so maybe you won't be so much informed as pumped full of another's opinion, but you get the idea. Lot of pumping going on.
Here we are in November of 2010 and I was pretty much just posting pics of my new purchases. As usual, I buy on a basis of cool, somehow related to my old stories, or the rare actual knowledge of a character.

My pics of Marvel figures were always spotty - not sure why. It's not that they didn't excite me as much...I guess I've always just did my own thing with them and figured a lot of it wouldn't make sense since I made up my own stories for long-time characters that I barely knew anything about. Superhero figures were always my wildcards that were used across my old toy stories, so I see them in a different light than most.
So lets travel back to February 2009 when the wife and I (then fiance) were still living out of her mom's house (at least for another month or so) and I had a crap camera and no backgrounds or specific lighting. I was waiting for the Marvel Universe figures to show up for the first time, and ran into Wolverine Origins figures first!

This was January 2011 and the new toys for the time were showing up. This toyline appeared at Meijer (grocery store like K-Mart or Wal-Mart) and went on clearance not long after. Seemed like it might have had some sort of media behind it with a website to go to (though I barely checked it out) and a story. They had little bugs on wheels (I think) and then these: Metomorphs.
Were you folks aware of the Mortal Kombat toyline? If not, then you don't go to Toys R Us, 'cause that's the only place you can get it. In fact, that's the place where you can get a lot of Jazwares products! Anyway, I only bought a few things: One Scorpion, and this pack.
